Making Media More Responsive, More Reflective of Life in Communities

Mike Wassenar from Saint Paul Neighborhood Network told The UpTake’s Sam Mayfield at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston last weekend that he’s here because NCMR is an intersection of people doing work on government policy funding initiatives, practitioners doing education work in local communities, media practitioners, storytellers, people working on diversity issues, and activists.

Free and Open Internet a Non-partisan Issue

At the National Conference for Media Reform, the UpTake’s Sam Mayfield spoke with Craig Aaron, the new CEO of Free Press, who says he entered this line of work because he cares deeply about journalism and the free and open Internet. “If we don’t fix media, then we won’t be able to fix any issue that we care about,” says Aaron.
